Upcoming events

Dear Diocesan Musicians,

The Glastonbury Pilgrimage takes place this Sunday, in the Abbey Grounds at Glastonbury

This is always a joyful event, with our Lady of Glastonbury at the heart of the celebrations. Members of the Diocesan Choir, with conductor and cantor Martin Le Poidevin, lead the singing. If you're coming to Glastonbury, or even if you weren't intending to but now fancy it, please do come and join us! All welcome!


This is our timetable for the afternoon. Join us whenever you can.

1.45pm - Quick sort-out and rehearsal for the Mass

2.15pm - The Pilgrimage Procession around town centre. Ten four-part harmony hymns, which we'll join in with

About 3pm - Procession ends back in Abbey Grounds. Further choir rehearsal and sound check.

3.30pm - Mass starts.

You will be able to find the choir, with other musicians, at the front of the Abbey ruins, next to the altar. Don't be shy, make yourself know.
